Five stocks with high scores to watch this earnings season

Netflix

Video streaming giant Netflix (NFLX) has been a top performer in 2017, with the company showing continuing strength in new subscriber counts. The stock’s technical strength has resulted in a 69 overall score on its Stock Score Report onĀ InvestorsObserver, with a very high short-term technical ranking. Last quarter the company added 5.2 million new subscribers, which crushed the 3.23 million estimate. Analysts will pay close attention to new subscriber counts for the most recent quarter. Netflix recently announced it will be raising prices slightly, which could have a short term impact on new subscriber growth, but if the company is able to use the additional income from its subscribers to expand its lineup of original programming, the move should lead to strong member growth in the long term. The company will report third-quarter numbers on October 16, and analysts forecast earnings of $0.32 per share, a strong improvement from the $0.12 it earned during the same period last year.
